Peacehaven have already met East Preston twice this season and have lost on both occasions. The first was the opening league game of the season when East Preston ran out winners 1-0 and the next time was on September 2 when East Preston knocked Peacehaven out of the Sussex Senior Cup 2-1 at the Unibet Arena.
Currently Saturday’s visitors are in 13th place in the league with 21 points from 17 games played. Meanwhile Peacehaven are third with 34 points from the same number of games.
Curiously and the fact that Peacehaven are ten places higher in the league than Saturday's visitors, East Preston’s form over the last five games is better than Peacehaven’s. They've won three games, drawn one and lost one. While Peacehaven over the same period have won once, drawn three times and lost once.
Last Saturday, the visitors recorded a superb 2-1 victory over high-flying Three Bridges and in November they bowed out of the Sussex Senior Cup 3-2 to a strong Brighton & Hove Albion side, and that result needed extra time to settle it.
East Preston are a young, skilful side with an average age of less than 21. The visitors also like to play open attacking football and they won the league’s respect award for October/November.
A good open game looks likely with East Preston going for a hat trick of wins and with Peacehaven with a point to prove.
The action starts at 3pm. Entry is £6 for adults, £4 for over 65s and under 18s get in for free.
